Creative writing is deep, mysterious play. It’s where you can let yourself come undone.
Letting go can be uncomfortable. But it’s where the magic happens: in the trust fall of words.
Learn how to override the fear that keeps you from letting go.

Once a week, you log in to the Writing Practice online classroom.
All you need is a notebook or paper, a few fast-writing pens, and a comfortable and quiet place to sit.
As soon as you press “play” on the audio component of the week’s session, I will guide you through a 60-minute recorded session of writing prompts and exercises.
The exercises are simple, beautiful, unexpected: all writers are welcome, regardless of genre or experience.
Once you’ve completed the week’s writing practice, you’re ready to join your fellow writers in the Writing Practice forum.
There, you can share your work and discuss the week’s exercises. Since the course is self-guided, it is likely there will often be someone working through the same exercises as you.
Something happens to creative energy when people do it together. Energy expands!
The six writing practice sessions are designed to be completed once a week, but the timing is ultimately up to you. If you pace it out over a longer period of time, or want to do one session a day every day for six days — that’s your choice. This is your practice.
All I want is for you to feel open and unstuck, and remember how much you love writing.
